Style Advice of the Week

Is there anything better than an outfit that’s the perfect mix of casual, cool and comfort? I think not, my stylish friends, I think not. It can be a challenge to conquer both style and comfort while avoiding looking too frumpy. There’s definitely an art to it that can be hard to emulate. When it’s done right, however, it can carry you from your day-to-day tasks with ease. Everything from coffee runs, lunch dates or even just making your way to class — keeping it comfortable, cool and casual makes the transition easy.

This Fashionista conquers it perfectly with a feminine touch, straying from looking too casual. To keep it comfortable, she utilizes a closet staple we all have — a gray V-neck T-shirt — and dresses it up with a neutral-based floral skirt that sets up her color palette. The key to pulling off this casual look so successfully? Maintaining some structured feminine accessories to keep it polished. Working from the shoes up, this Fashionista works her outfit through clean, dainty accessories. While the necklace and shoes complement each other perfectly, her gorgeous satchel-purse changes up the monotone accessories and brings it all together to make a chic ensemble.

Dare to try keeping it casual yourself? Do what this Fashionista did and try and pull it off through building off of one accessory first.
